Limited in-person seats are available to view and participate in the virtual meeting at the Lewis & Clark Room in Dillon (call 406-683-3768 to reserve a spot) and at the Lima Town Hall (call 406-276-3521).
Beaverhead County, the City of Dillon, and the Town of Lima have been working with the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) and Montana Department of Natural Resources and Conservation (DNRC) to update and produce new floodplain maps for the Beaverhead River, Blacktail Deer Creek, Selway Slough, and Junction Creek.
Many of the existing floodplain maps are based on data from the late 1970s. Updated Flood Insurance Rate Maps will provide more accurate, current, and detailed data and mapping of flood risk areas. When finalized, the new maps could have effects on some property owners in mapped floodplains.
